We spent our Anniversary in Lake Placid and dined at The View both times. We both had the Prime Beef Filet and shared the Peanut Butter Shortbread for dessert this year. Make your reservations for earlier in the evening for the best seating and views of Mirror Lake. Expensive...BUT the best meal, view, & service in Lake Placid if you're... More

We were on vacation in the area with family that had been to The View before and insisted we experience it. The restaurant sits in a beautiful hotel with a gorgeous view of Mirror lake. We started in the bar and enjoyed some well crafted cocktails before moving to our table. The food was mostly good, nothing terribly memorable; the... More

My husband and I enjoyed celebrating our anniversary dinner here last night. We appreciated the many special touches including a photo presentation of us that evening. Extra little surprises such as a sorbet palate cleanser and Candied nuts and chocolate nibbles were delicious. Our bison short ribs with crispy onions was out of this world delicious!

We went here for our 30th anniversary and enjoyed our evening. The attention to detail such as the sorbet to cleanse the palate between courses, complimentary appetizer and photo finish is why this is a four star restaurant. The food was great and the view over the lake was wonderful. The staff was very enjoyable.
